Carcassonne

The main attraction of the day was Carcassonne. It is a city in France near Montpellier, where we've been staying, and itt has a rich history dating back to Medieval Times.
The main attraction of the day was Carcassonne. It is a city in France near Montpellier, where we've been staying, and it has a rich history dating back to Medieval Times. Our tour guide told us the legend of Lady Carcas and led us around the fortress. The city is surrounded by two concentric circular walls comprised of 53 towers. As the city passed to different countries and rulers, they added more to the fortress to protect it.


It was very interesting to learn about the history and see the beautiful city, although the history can be hard to follow. We even got to see people singing in Russian in the cathedral. Also, there were a lot of cute shops and we got to eat crepes and gelato.


We also went on a short visit to the Polytech Montpellier University, which is the engineering school. We learned about their cheap tuition and different process for obtaining their degrees. They require their students to go abroad, which I think is a great experience.

The rest of the day was spent exploring Montpellier, trying more food, and practicing the handful of French phrases we've learned. One of the most useful phrases may be 'Je suis fatigué,' as we have had some long, exciting days.
